Trish was raised with a mother who taught her and her five older siblings all the benefits of plant-based nutrition, but like many young adults, Trish rebelled against the lifestyle her mother raised her on. Because of the standard American diet Trish was consuming, she weighed 265 pounds at age 25. In hopes of regaining control of her health, Trish decided to come back to the plant-based diet she was raised on. Since then, Trish has lost 90 pounds and is a proud advocate for the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle. As a certified facilitator for the Complete Health Improvement Program and as a Food for Life instructor, she has assisted in improving blood work results and weight loss in her students.
